Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1;9)
Choose to honor God's commands. He has commanded you...
-Be strong and of a good courage. -Do not be afraid. -Do not be dismayed.
...For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. These commands and promises are yours also as you prepare to enter into your divine destiny.
As soon as Joshua received these guarantees, he relayed God's plan to the officers of the people (Joshua 1:1-9). He told them to...
Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it. (Joshua 1:11)
If you are to be a proof-producer, you must learn to act upon the Word of the Lord. Obeying God's commands are not only important to victorious Christian living, they are vital to becoming a proof-producing believer.
The people responded positively to Joshua's directives from the Lord, declaring: "All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go" (Joshua 1:16).
This was quite a different response from that of the previous generations of Israelites who arrived at the border of their promised land forty years previously. This is a new generation. This is a group of people who are not going to be defeated by their own words. They know how to deal with the battles of the tongue, the mind, the heart, the world, the flesh, and the devil. They will not be defeated by the enemy. They will not walk in disobedience. They will not be denied. They will reach their destiny!
